Lutheran High Results 2018

March 01, 2018

    The Plainview Pirate speech team earned 2nd place overall at the Lutheran High Invitational on Friday.  We had two champions: Jordyn Anderson in extemporaneous speaking and Elizabeth Kment in informative speaking. Earning 2nd place medals in varsity were Matthew Bonta in persuasive, AdeDamola Akinnigbagbe in poetry, and the duet of Kylie Mosel and Austin Choat. In third place was Morgyn Christiansen in entertainment speaking and the Oral Interpretation of Drama team with Morgyn Christiansen, Matthew Bonta, John Novicki, Matthew Hoffman and Brittani Wacker.

   We had two fourth place holders: Ashlynn Ickler in poetry and Brittani Wacker in persuasive. Kylie Mosel earned fifth in informative and Becca Kment earned fifth in serious prose. Our sixth place holders were Austin Choat in humorous prose and Kylee Jipp in serious prose.

       The team had 14 out of 18 finalist. Quote from head coach Mrs.Schindler “Naturally, we were pleased to have so many finalists, but then again, that was our goal.  We believe our kids are loaded with talent, and as they continue to polish their performances, we think they ALL have potential to be medalists. Although this contest wasn’t as big as others--10 teams were in attendance—we definitely saw some high-quality competition all day long. Lots of great stuff. I saw several performances whom I would expect to be state-qualifying material.  In the end, we did suffer a few disappointments in how we were ranked in finals. However, the kids keep their eyes focused on the future, as they continue to work toward their goals.”

      The team will travel to Norfolk this Saturday to compete; first round begins at 8:00 AM. Conference has been moved to March 5th, due to the snow; first round will begin at 8:00 AM. Tuesday March 6th the Plainview speech team will have their open house, everyone is welcome to come; performances will start at 7:00 PM.
